In a year and a half on the scene in Buffalo, the theatrical archaeologists at the Playhouse of American Classics have had great success in digging up the forgotten gems of 20th century American theater. And at 8 tonight, the company, based in the auditorium of the Buffalo & Erie County Historical Society (25 Nottingham Court), will present another one.
Elmer Rice's comedy "Dream Girl," which was a hit in 1945 and promptly fell into the theatrical dustbin of history, will come alive in a production that runs through Sunday. The show tells the story of a day in the life of the young dreamer Georgina Allerton, a bookstore employee whose mind floats off into all sorts of whimsical directions.
For more information on the show -- which is presented in a "chamber theater" format, with actors in costume reading scripts -- call 862-9531 or visit www.playhouseofamericanclassics.org.
